One more thing- It's a machine, and there is no magic involved. Cleanliness
is the first step in machine maintenance. Machines don't prevaricate-
they're just tattle-tales. Good maintenance is good. You might fool
yourself, not the machine.

You could be experiencing a "power dip" between 10am and 2pm when everyone
is at work and has all their stuff turned on. Have you correlated the times
of day?

If "...[You] would expect that it would not normally [cycle] until 482 if
that is what it's set at," What were you looking for and how were you
looking- temperature dial? Where is its measuring point? Better yet, was zum
Teufel do you want, Temperature or Taste?

PID controllers do that all day long- they just have to "learn" the system
dynamics first.

If "Some clean" is good, mo is betta and you might detect an incipient
failure before it makes blue fire and smoke - or nothing works...
